come all too soon... winter! the des moines public works department says it's ready. today the department had its equipment on display at the public works yard. public works director jonathan gano says there are a few changes for the chilly months ahead... he's added three miles of snow routes...and deleted 17-miles. he says that's all due to changes in bus routes... the main routes through the city are also being given higher priority. 12:10:05-12:10:17 we are putting more trucks on the most important streets. biggest streets will have 4 or 5 plows working down the street all at once. the city has a 3-point-5-million- dollar snow removal budget for the winter. gano says there are 51 snow plow...and 15-thousand tons of salts ready to go. as the weather gets cooler, you'll have some new places to shop... two new stores at jordan creek town center are within weeks of opening. officials say the michael kors

a drake university law student got to put his question before the candidates last night. the five democrats running for president took the stage yesterday in las vegas. during the c-n-n sponsored debate sterling wilkins issued this question. 04-09 my question for the candidates is...do black live matter or do all live matter? wilkins says he didn't know his question was going to be used... he says he didn't even see it. he says he had the debate streaming on his computer, but it was mute. wilkins says his cell phone went crazy ...and he quickly found
the drake student explained why his question is so important. 14:29:51-14:29:19 i do think black lives matter and once black lives matter is accepted as not just a slogan but as a moral principal than all lives matter. i believe that it was important to phrase it as i did to get the candidate to express an answer to show that government needs to play a roll that black lives are valued as equally as white lives in our society. wilkins says he thinks hillary clinton won the debate overall.. when it comes to his question...he didn't declare a winner. drake university is the focus of another political event today. rand paul is stopping at the school as part of his "iowa 10- thousand" college tour. political director dave price joins us now with more...dave? rand paul's trying something that's either ambitious, risky or both. he wants to sign up 10,000
caucus night. young people notoriously don't take part in the caucuses. it's far more likely these students' parents or grandparents would show up to caucus. more than 200 people...mostly traditional college age, showed up to hear paul at drake this afternoon. paul says his libertarian-leaning message will connect with younger people upset at washington and concerned about their future. paul....658...we've gotten already 1,000 that have agreed to sign up it resonates no phone records, marijuana, war. it resonates with students. if paul gets 10,000 college students along with 10,000
supporters...that might be enough to put paul among the top three presidential republicans on caucus night. here's another reason why he thinks he can do it...the calendar. the caucuses have been held recently at the beginning of january...when students are still back home on christmas break. in 2016...they're scheduled for february first...when students will be back on campus...and paul hopes, ready and motivated to come out to support him. chelsea clinton is in des moines today... but she's not campaigning for her mother. clinton gave opening remarks today as part of the borlaug dialogue. it's a discussion that takes
place during world food prize week. clinton is speaking on behalf of the clinton foundation... clinton spoke about the foundations' work to improve global health and empower women and girls. a few clouds will build in tonight with lows in the mid to upper 40s. highs will stay in the low 70s for thursday with plenty of sunshine before chillier air

creations, the dy-cycle and the abc two, or the avery bike contraption. "avery has earned international accolades for his unique pieces. he's featured them at burning man in nevada, and very prominently right here in dubuque at the voices from the warehouse gallery." but avery says he's in his last few months of life, so he's decided to donate his two pieces to the city of dubuque. "it wasn't really about leaving my mark as it was to leave inspiration for people to do things." avery's chief goal for these pieces is to inspire a future generation of creators. he says he hopes his pieces will terminal under construction at the dubuque airport. "one of the biggest reasons i want to give it to dubuque because dubuque has always been really good for me." wherever they end up, city leadership is confident they'll certainly make an impact on everyone who sees them.
"i think they're very, very unique pieces. they were created by a dubuquer, in dubuque, and they're going to remain here for all dubuquers and travelers through our community special." the mayor says down the road the pieces will end up. finding a big enough spot will be part of that decision too... the dicycle measures 11 feet tall... while the abc-two is six feet tall and 13 feet long. a des moines couple who lost a little boy to leukemia in now helping other sick kids. this week jennifer and mike guthrie donated almost 15-hundred toys to blank children's hospital. the toys were collecting during a huge toy drive and celebration last month near saylorville lake. they hold the drive annually around the time of drake's birthday. he died at the age of two from complications from his fight with cancer. during drake's cancer fight...the hospital gave both drake and his older brother a-j toys... 11:28:44-11:29:13 when a.j. would receive them... they are insistent on it...
drake was on the other hand was a 1 to year and half....absolutely loved it. the family collected about 5- hundred more toys than the goal. if you missed the toy drive this year...don't worry...the guthrie's say they'll have another one next september. stick around, we'll get another look at your forecast, after the break. if you work hard, and you do your part, you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. but the republicans... they want to go back to letting the super wealthy call the shots. they don't stand up for equal pay for women. they don't support paid family leave.
we need to disrupt the old order in washington, dc. we can do a lot better by applying conservative principles we should lower rates and simplify the code to allow people to freely decide how they want to spend their money. what we need is leadership to fix a few big things... so that this country takes off and soars where people can dream the biggest possible dreams... and pursue them with a vengeance. sfx: applause jeb. proven conservative. real results.
